In this installment of the Why We Fight propaganda film series, we see the events of Nazi Germany's diplomatic and military acts of international aggression.

Part two of a seven film series taking a look at WW2. The film was produced by the American government so there's plenty of flag waving and the documentary is certainly one sided but that's to be expected since it's goal was to get people behind the war. It's a bit too over-dramatic for its own good but various executions and other deaths are quite disturbing to see. These real death scenes are something that were in a lot of this WW2 shorts. All of the Capra directed films are worth seeing as are the WW2 shorts by John Ford.
